Taxy this white chocolate cranberry fudge I made is so easy! I know you are concerned about food additives, it does use chocolate chips.....not sure if that is something you can/will eat, but maybe you could use an alternative. Sure hope Sterling feels better soon, were you meant to go to your MIL's for the holidays? I know you don't celebrate, but she does, no?

Most chocolate chips have soy lecithin and I'm only supposed to eat fermented soy.

I found a microwave fudge recipe: http://www.cooks.com/recipe/46du4b5/...microwave.html. It was easy and it's good. I'm still waiting to see if it will firm up some more. It's just a smidgen soft for getting the pieces out of the pan without bending.

Yes, we were going to spend a few days at the mummy-in-law's place. Yes, she and number 1 son, who still lives at home, do celebrate Xmas.

I hope Stirling feels better soon too. He says he can't remember ever feeling so sick and I think he had whooping cough as a kid.

Well I'm sorry you are going to miss the family get together....I know a lot of folks are suffering from either the stomach flu or a nasty cold that's going around. It's a shame you have had to cancel all if your celebrations this year. Here's hoping 2014 will prove healthier for both of you.
Cheers :)

Cat and Carl are on the phone and apparently Carl left a gift under her nightstand before he went home.

Geez, these kids stay up late!

Good night and Merry Christmas!

I am having surgery the day after Christmas. Left wrist and
elbow. So I am making sure everything is finished. Canned
6 quarts of green beans this morning. Cooked my part of
Christmas diner except for the prime rib.

Wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas !!

Josie

Josie, I hope the surgery goes well and you are all healed quickly.

Thank you Somebunny. If Stirling still has vacation time when he is better, we will probably visit the mummy in law. Cheers to you too.

The temperature is starting to drop and I can feel it immediately. We have thick walls and double pane windows. The outside walls are cold to the touch, in spite of their thickness. So I had to push up the thermostat a bit, again. We have forced hot air and no moisture. So I think it is time to put a large pan of water on the back burner again. It really helps to heat up the apartment without having to push up the thermostat.

The Hallmark Movie channel has a continuous picture of a burning fireplace while Christmas hymns and songs play. I better get some sleep if I expect Santa to leave me any new toys. Spike is getting me a new office chair for my computer. He is trying to locate one that I like that he can order on line and pick up at the store. There is a Staples just a few minutes from where I live. So far the ones we have looked up don't have the option of store pickup. And he doesn't want to pay shipping charges. Can't say that I blame him. Will have to look at Office Max.
